I've been told that I have an Acinetobacter Baumanni infection at a surgery site. I've also been told not to worry about it and that the Augmentin I finished 10 days ago would clear it up.
Is this true?
Are there "harmless" Acinetobacter Baumannii infections?
Is Acinetobacter Baumannii everywhere?

I can't find any information to collaborate what my doc's saying.
Please help!
